You already know that it's probably not the best thing that your eye starts twitching suddenly. But what exactly does it mean?
Eye twitching, eyelid tics and spasms are pretty common. Usually only the bottom lid of one eye is involved but sometimes the top lid also twitch. Most of the eye twitches come and go but some last for a long time as well.
Eye Twitching got an ideal definition from Mayo Clinic. It can be defined as,
Eyelid twitching (myokymia) affects only the eyelid. It can involve either the upper or lower lid, but only one eye at a time. The eye twitching can range from being barely noticeable to bothersome. The twitching usually goes away within a short time but may recur over a few hours, days or longer. A lot of general doctors aren’t even sure what exactly is to blame for eye twitching, leading to frustration for those who have tried to seek an explanation.
Let's go through the know how's,
Some call it to be a consequence of stress or tension. While some are clueless about the factors and relate it to fads.
While in some other cases, the twitching stays for long.
Alcohol, Bright lights, Excessive caffeine, Fatigue and Smoking.
Like smoking and drinking.
Or something much serious like Blepharitis, which is chronic or difficult to treat inflammation of the eyelid.
First of all, you'll want to make sure your eye twitching is not a result of anything like ALS, so checking in with an eye doctor is advised if you're experiencing persistent twitching. You should be reducing coffee and alcohol consumption.
